The opening credits of the film appear in the form of invitation cards, the first reading "Fox Film invites you to Jesse L. Lasky's Coming Out Party R.s.v.p. 715 Park Avenue." New York Times called the film Coming-Out Party. The working title was Society Debut. This was British actor Nigel Bruce's first American film. According to a Daily Variety news item, a number of "debs and sub-debs" from all parts of the United States were cast in the film. Although "Joy's" pregnancy is not overtly mentioned in the film, reviews state that during the night of her argument with "Chris" at the roadhouse, their "love is consummated" in his room, and she discovers that she is pregnant just before he is called off to Europe. Film Daily commented, "It looks like considerable cutting and editing eliminated some scenes that would have served to make the film more coherent."
